Track Name: Hold Fast
There on the moor
His cape lay still
Sun-bleached, worn
Material

I can remember when
A thousand miles
Was just beyond the garden wall
We could escape there then
To become whoever we wanted to be

We were kites
Rising high
Pulling twine
Till you were blown away

‘Cause I remember when
A thousand eons
Lay across the fence, waiting to be explored
With capes around our necks
We ruled an empire
And as we ran, yours fell to the ground

These changes are forever
Times move on, we fade away
And like cotton slowly fraying
The circle never sways

I fly your kite
Rising high
Pulling twine
Till I am blown away

They are kites
Rising high
Pulling twine
Through the people who remain
Track Name: Beat In Time
All the people that you loved
Well they were with you when you died
Although the going was rough
And all the newspapers lied
All your closest knew
That they were not right

‘Cause all of these things you were going to do
Well I’m going to live out your time for you
And your old drums lying in your room
Well I’m going to beat them in time for you
In time for you

Here’s the thing about love
It’s in love you’re made and in love you die
And here’s the thing about life
Although it didn’t feel like your time
You will live on through
Through the people that you left behind

‘Cause all of these things you were going to do
Well I’m going to lay them in line for you
And your old drums lying in your room
Well I’m going to beat them in time for you
In time for you

The last time I saw you
The moment was so confused
And through it all
The pressure has took its toll
But one thing I now know
You’ll still be here to break my fall
And I will do you proud
The one way that I know how

‘Cause all of these plans we had yet to see through
Well I’m going to lay them in line for you
And your guitar is pulling me through
And we’re going to strum out a tune or two
A song for you
Track Name: The Artist
See the artist’s empty smile
Well it’s been there for a while
You know his wife died in a car
And it nearly broke his heart

He puts a face on every day
Afraid of what the kids might say
It’s time to sing a different song
To feel he belongs

The artist smiles and says hello
‘Cause he’s trying hard to leave it aside
Just to let it go
See the artist say hello
‘Cause he’s trying hard to leave it aside
Just to let it go

Behind his smile-lined disguise
He tries to ease the mind
Self depiction on the page
Cartoon man with cartoon rage

And where the soul can bleed
Beneath thread holding the seams
Can be hard to see
So tread compassionately
Track Name: Peace Of Mind
As I was walking yesterday
I came to a river crossing my way
There I found my peace of mind
Time to escape from the everyday grind

Pavement cracks beneath my feet
As I was wondering through these streets
Building blocks reach to the sky
But stars are blind to every eye

There beneath the urban sky
Where our lives are lived and died
Do you feel unhinged but you can’t say why?
It’s a silent reminder of our times

A call to those who do not know
We will reap what we will sow
Do you hear our call
For our peace of mind?

Beauty marred by a showing bone
Because these houses can never be homes
Gold lies thick across the sand
Drowning greed to meet the demand

Truth sets seed and truth will grow
Till it sets alight the streets with boughs
Primeval kiss will thaw hearts soon
Love will grow and life will bloom

A mindless state
Or poverty
Conscience disappeared
We’ll make our mark
Cause here we stand
For society
